Rockfax Description
A bit aimless but pleasant and with only one tricky move. Follow Bishop's Route to the ledge then step out right and climb the well-positioned flake crack in the arete to a fine finish on flutings. © Rockfax

Backed off Zigzag flake and did this because I had done Bishops before. Not VS though, hardly even a HS apart from stepping out.
